COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
MIDWEST INDIA PALE ALE
The devil is in the details. The light touch of pale and wheat malts. Amarillo, Cascade, Simcoe and Chinook hops. Massive hops additions imbue a wicked bitterness and the intense floral aromas of citrus and lush tropical fruit. Hoppy, hoppy, rich and golden.

Tasted on tap at Jolly Pumpkin in Ann Arbor. It poured a almost clear amber with an off white head and fairly solid lacing. Citrus hop aroma. Well hopped taste with a slightly bitter finish.

Draft at Dutch’s in August 2014 from notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a nice mix of resiny, citrus, floral hops, toasted bready malts, a splash of caramel, moderate bitterness, this was definitely better than expected.

rondphoto (2269) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - OCT 4, 2014
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear light medium amber with a generous frothy white head, constellations of lace. Taste is big-bodied dark fruit and malt that includes biscuit and mown hay in the palate before strong alcohol shows up at the finish. Nicely balanced, good malt and good hop presence. A solid winner.

On draught in a tulip. Nose is nice mix of fruity and grassy hops. Easy to drink mix of great hop flavors throughout, would not say this is wickedly bitter, bit fairly so.

arminjewell (6414) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, hazy orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of orange peel, lemon, ethanol, hints of grass, bread, some caramel, touch of white fruit. Taste is a mix of bread, grass, caramel, toffee, hints of orange, floor wax, finishing sweet, goopy, alcoholic.

It poured an amber color with an off-white head. The aroma was of spicy hops, some malts and floral notes. The taste was of a good malt base, lots of hops, some citrus, tasty florals and a hint of grass. Very nice.

thegreenrooster (3295) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Pour is a hazy, murky amber with a small white head. Aroma is fruity hop with a decent caramel malt. Flavor is super sweet caramel malt with a decent hoppy backbone. Finish leaves equal hop resin and sweet malt on the tongue. Decent strong/IPA ale. A bit sweet and thick but has enough hop presence to make this appealing.

Tmoney99 (11061) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Draft. Poured clear copper with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex citrus hop aroma. Medium to abundant body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Surpassed my expectations.

Super max DIPA! Almost had to chew the body! Hops and alcohol were at the top. Dark amber color. $3.89/12 ounce was a bit pricey.
